Science of Breath by Swami Rama, Rudolph Ballentine, Alan Hymes

Much of the Western world was completely unaware of the profound impact of the breath on the body and mind until the 1970’s. It was during this time that Swami Rama astonished physiologists by demonstrating perfect control over his heart rate and brain waves—something Western scientists didn’t believe humans could possibly achieve. In this book, Swami Rama shares some of the basic breathing techniques practiced by Himalayan yogis, so that you too can experience the profound effects of pranayama and breath control.The goal of Science of Breath is to present knowledge and practices regarding the breath in a way that can be applied to personal growth. This book is a masterful guide to systematically identifying bad breathing habits, replacing those habits with healthy breathing patterns, and developing control over pranic flow. Learn how to develop and master the link between your body and mind through the understanding of the breath. With increased awareness and control of the subtle aspects of breathing, one can effect deep physical and psychological changes and begin to master the roaming tendencies of the mind. Science of Breath opens the door to a new way of being, providing a powerful tool in the pursuit of holistic health and personal growth.

Everyone breathes in and out though out the day ,but how many are breathing properly and efficiently on a regular basis? Very few!! If the benifits of diaphragmic breathing could be put in a bottle and sold people would spent $30, $50 and even $100 to reap those benifits. This well written book explains the "Science of Breath" and the ability to bring that to you daily life. This was required reading for my Yoga Teacher Certification.
